Celebrity Kids Gone Bad: Jeremy London [Who is Jeremy London?]

Jeremy-london-small  No doubt you've read the gossip about the recent goings-on with Jeremy London.  Homegirl has gotten himself into a hot mess of an intricate situation that seems to have been devised by the writers of Six Feet Under, a four year old and a Choose Your Own Adventure book with half the pages missing. 

So, Jeremy London.  Aside from him being in the center of a riveting bad-accident-scene-type story, who the eff is Jeremy London?

Modern-family Men kissing? Each other? On Television? What?! This can't be! It's the end, I tell you. The next thing you know, our male senators will be soliciting blow jobs in airport restrooms.

If My Parents Named Me Guerdwich Montimere, I'd Be an Imposter, Too, If It Meant I Could Have a New Name

Guerdwich-montimere I loves me a good imposter story: Guerdwich Montimere, a 22-year-old former basketball player at Fort Lauderdale's Dillard High School was also, until recently, a 16-year-old high school basketball player named Jerry Joseph at Permian High School in Odessa, Texas.

M.I.A. Releases Graphic, Explicit 'Born Free' Video (NSFW)

MIA MIA released her new video for 'Born Free' on her website Monday and typical for the wonderfully unconventional artist, this video is in-your-face politics.  On the political nature of her work she has said, "I have to be true to that--I can't take certain things away. I do have a political background. I’m only in England, learning this language and building a life in this society, because of political reasons. Why would I deny that?" M.I.A. has also talked at length about the fusion of politics into her music. "Nobody wants to be dancing to political songs. Every bit of music out there that’s making it into the mainstream is really about nothing. I wanted to see if I could write songs about something important and make it sound like nothing. And it kind of worked."

Tiger and Elin v. Jesse and Sandra: Dr. Drew Plays Judge

Dr. Drew Pinsky  Dr. Drew Pinsky has concluded that the Tiger Woods situation is completely different than the Jesse James situation.  Of course it is.  Tiger Woods cheated on his wife with a bajillion hookers women.  Jesse James cheated on his wife with a bajillion hookers painted ladies.  Completely different.  But that's not Dr. Drew's point; that's just mine.

Today in "You Don't Say?!": Roman Polanski Edition

 *Disclaimer: This post includes references to sexual violence that may be triggering to some readers*

Roman-Polanski0230 Reading some current events today, I encountered a headline that punched me in the face and kicked me square in the doughiest section of my ass.  And then my head exploded, making my Red Bull undrinkable and my bagel soggy and inedible.  This soured my mood considerably, as I  have already been frustrated with some personal goings on and haven't had a moment to myself to properly vent and/or enjoy several hundred grams of carbohydrates.  So, bear with me here whilst I get a bit furious with the latest in the Roman Polanski Jackassery.

Captain Obvious Strikes Again! John Edwards Finally Admits That the Kid Is His

John_edwards John Edwards, in a bold move called telling the truth, has finally admitted, two freaking years after his ex-lover Rielle Hunter had his love child, that Frances Quinn Hunter is, indeed, his baby. Everyone knew it, and his wife Elizabeth Edwards pretty much said that she was, but he held out on the truth anyway.

How do we describe John Edwards' character? Sound it out now. S-H-A-D-Y.

But... What Does George Clooney Think About The Jay Leno And Conan O'Brien Mess?

George_clooney1 As I was searching for inspirado on my first post for MamaPop, I found myself unable to think of anything other than Dennis Franz's naked man-butt.  You see, I was originally going to relive one of the most disturbing moments in TV history, but as that's not exactly top-of- mind (to anyone other than I and perhaps David Caruso,)  I flipped on Access Hollywood just in time to see Dr. George Clooney's invaluable perspective on the Jay Leno/Conan O'Brien debacle...

RIP, Olivia. Big Bird - And I - Will Miss You.

AlainaReedHall This one of those deaths-of-people-I-only-know-through-popular-culture that actually had the power to make me tear up. Alaina Reed, aka Olivia from Sesame Street, died yesterday and I when I heard the news I actually had to stifle a sob. I mean: OLIVIA. She was awesome. She wore beads in her hair

10 Reasons Polygamy Is The Way, As Informed By My Engaged Viewing Of Big Love

Big_love Me and my wife don't smoke crack so we watch TV on DVD, compulsively. Like, just one more before bed. Please baby. One more episode. That kind of thing.
